Raw Thai Wraps with Cilantro-Pumpkin Seed Pâté

We have a garden full of tender fresh collard greens right now which is what inspired me to create these nourishing raw wraps! My children even love them. Well, my 8-year old thinks they are just okay, and the littlest one can only really eat the pâté and cucumber strips, but the rest of the gang enjoys them!

I know I haven't been blogging much lately. I have a one-year old now who is into everything.....and four other children. Need I say more? However, we do have a new website in the works which I'm excited to share with you, so stay tuned! If you want to keep up with what I'm cooking and creating in my kitchen please follow me on Instagram. In the meantime....please enjoy this raw collard wrap recipe!

These were winners on a multi-day mountain bike trip--so refreshing and satisfying. Had the pate and sauce made a day in advance and stored in the cooler, and chopped up the veggie ingredients in the morning and wrapped them together tightly in our daypacks for the ride. Our companions weren't satisfied to taste ours only once. Good thing we brought plenty to share!

I am fighting a 21 yr old, serious, autoimmune illness and have decided to try to go gluten-free. I just wanted to say that I thank my lucky stars that I found this wonderful amazing incredible website. Thank you so much for making it.

Do you or anyone who reads this have a suggestion as to where to get pumpkin seeds. All the ones available to me through or UNFI co-op and the ones at the store are from China. Any sources in the US would be great! Thanks

Collard wraps are one of my most favorite raw recipes!! I am so excited to try your version.
Peace and Raw Health,

Just what I needed for Friday night dinner, thanks! Also, thanks for the blog post. We've been missing your culinary magic.

What could be used instead of cilantro? yuck ;) no parsley either! any suggestions???

Can I use the coconut aminos in Phase Two of the elimination diet and or coconut vinegar?

Mmm, These look great! My 1-year-old likes the pumpkin seed pate from the new book a lot. I am still trying to figure out what to feed her in the grain department (we've delayed somewhat), and I sometimes can't think of new things. So far, the only "grain" I've introduced is the soaked sourdough teff injera. We didn't do grain purees as first food. We're trying to move in the direction of soaking/sprouting all the grains, but it does take some forethought. What is your 1-year-old eating these days? (And how did they get to be 1 already?!)

Looks and sounds super delicious! Our kind of food. Thanks for sharing cannot wait to try it! Have a Lovely day :)
